"New Ivies" and Party Schools

I’m passing along two lists. The first is from Newsweek. “The Kaplan College Guide” has suggested 25 colleges and universities that are the “New Ivies.” You can read the article and entire list here. (There are many other good articles to navigate to on this page as well.)

The second list is from The Princeton Review. From the press release:

“The Texas Longhorns earned another national title Monday, not for football but as the country's best party school. The University of Texas at Austin beat Penn State University, West Virginia University and last year's winner, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, in the Princeton Review survey of 115,000 students at campuses around the country. It topped the overall list — its first time atop the Princeton Review chart — by ranking second in the use of hard liquor, third in beer drinking and 13th in marijuana smoking.”
